35mm Film Camera Ricoh XR-2

Can you still get parts for a Ricoh XR-2 camera. I have a broken film advance lever. Is this still repairable.

    Sorry, that camera is no longer supported by Ricoh. What do you mean exactly by the film advance being broken? It won't move or it is damaged?

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...


DO NOT force it. It's going to need to be opened up by a technician and checked out. It may, or may not be repairable (or worth repairing). Batteries will have nothing to do with whether or not the wind lever will function. It sounds like the camera has jammed on someone, so they sold it off (probably without stating that little issue). The Chinon cameras aren't especially high-end, you can probably buy 10 new ones for the cost of having that one repaired, but you'll only know by finding a shop and asking.

Do i need to rewind film after taking a picture on my diana f+ ??


If you are using 120 film (medium format) you only need to advance the film as far as possible. Then remove the film from the camera and wrap the excess paper around the roll and seal.

When you finish all the pictures on the roll of 35mm film you will need to rewind the film completely before exposing it to light. You can do this by taking the camera in a pitch dark room, removing the film and turning the knob on the top of the film roll until the film has been completely wound back into the the roll.

Film advance shows double exposures and spacing problems. What is the problem?


The film advance mechanism is broken.

Given the very high value of your camera it's definitely not a DIY repair. Although a professional repair will not be cheap, it will definitely make economic sense compared to the cost of replacing your M6, so send it to your nearest official Leica servicing agent.

I put the film in my camera backwards(with the tail of the film facing to the left) and i cant get it back out. when i tried pulling up on the rewinder thing part of it snapped off


If it was just the folding lever part of the rewinder which has broken off then you'll need to use a flat bladed screwdriver or the tip of a knife to lever up the rewind knob sufficiently to pull it up and open the camera.

If you've broken any more than that, then your camera is unrepairable. Spare parts are not available for your camera as it's only designed to last for six rolls of film. Even regular Lomo and Holga models are only intended to last for a maximum of twelve films.

My Mamiya RB67 triggers and shutter lease lever works but film advance lever doesn't move. Trigger button fired several times but film advance still showing 1.


This is not the best solution as it indicates a faulty film back. The film should advance without resorting to activating the film-wind release lever. That is only for intentionally advancing a partially exposed roll of film. Make sure the multi-exposure lever is not engaged and that the counter does advance and the red mark disappears as you advance to an unexposed frame.

How to open filnm compartment of old 35mm nikon


Is it an SLR model?

I am not familiar with Nikons; however, Minolta and Canon SLR film camera's film compartments are opened by lifting up on the film rewind mechanism on the top left side of the camera.

If the Nikons are designed like Minolta and Canon, there will be a small tab to push in at the bottom of the camera. This releases the film and allows it to be rewound. At the top left will be a small rewind lever that is used to do the rewind. The part of the camera that the rewind lever is attached to is pulled up to open the back of the camera.

The film wont advance


remove and reinsert battery.
be sure you pulled the film all the way across the back.
be sure the door latches.
be sure camera is on.
try the rewind button, it may think it has film in it, ready to rewind.
Still no good? film advance motor may be dead. If so, it needs repair. Lucky for you, the Maxxum 50 goes for cheap on Ebay. You can get another at a good price.

No film advance.


Hello drummer 37,   As I recall, this was a peculiar problem with all 35mm film cameras. Your canera could have; a bad battery or batteries, a short to the film advance motor, or corrosion, or bad gears to the film advance motors, or end of film, etc. You would need to open your camera in a darkroom bag and remove any film inside. If no film inside the camera, then do a circuit check from batteries to every electronic component and motor using battery power or bench check the camera's motors by bypassing the batteries with an AC/DC benchtop power supply. Wow - really expensive and time-consuming = complete stripdown and repair. Depending on the camera make, it would be your decision whether to compare repair price to camera value. If it is no longer in production meaning parts need to be cannabalized from another old non-working camera, the cost of repair would exceed the value of the camera. Look for another good used model or move on to a digital SLR camera as your tool.
